My intention for this one is to come up with something attractive and crazy. Let me get to that in detail after I show you the nail art design that I named Black Cats Galore.
Black Cats Galore Nail Art Design by Simply Rins
I was actually hesitant that a bright yellow will work for Halloween. But after careful deliberation, I think it did! Well, I have to be honest that I really love the color and before I even cooked up the design, I was already decided that I'd be wearing the polish.
I was not so sure if I could pull off such an attractive color. It was an attention grabber!
Dazzle Dry Sahara
I used 3 thin coats of Dazzle Dry Sahara for the background color. 2 layers would have been enough but I wanted to get a really bright finish. I have reviewed this polish here.
As for the black cats, I hand painted them using acrylic paints, a detailing and stripper nail art brush. I have been getting a lot of inquiries whether or not my designs are stickers or decals. I would like to take them in as compliments. But just to clarify, the nail designs here in this blog are all freehand unless otherwise stated.
Please forgive me as I show you another photo with the polish bottle:

Okay, so I think we covered how this design became attractive. Don't you just love the color? So, how was this crazy?
I came up with the idea for painting black cats. But I didn't want it to appear too scary and I also wanted to paint one on all my nails. I figured I can paint peeping black cats and place them randomly on each nail just to make the overall design more interesting. If you have been a follower of Simply Rins for some time now, you know by now that I love doing designs like this one. ;)
The design is quite simple. I painted an oval head for the cat with tiny ears and long whiskers. The neck is exaggerated to be long and thin. I also wanted part of the body to show so I painted that too. Add 2 white dots of eyes and use a stripper brush to add a fine black line in the middle to finish the eyes.
I don't normally use my thumb for accent nail because I think they're too wide. But as I was using my phone, I got distracted with the black cat and I really thought it was interesting. Take a look:

I now have ideas on using the thumb as accent nail for future designs. It would definitely make texting more fun!
This year, I'd like to be more adventurous on the colors I'll be using for my Halloween nail designs. I'll be featuring the traditional colors, too. But I'd like to see if I could make other colors work for the theme as well. If you have suggestions for me, please let me know by commenting below.
Black Cats Galore for Halloween -- Parting Shot
I hope you liked this attractive and crazy Halloween nail art design as much as I did. An alternative is to paint each nail with a different bright color. I think that would also work.
